3 new cards

I got 3 cards done this week.
The first one is for one of my nephews who is having a birthday this month. I used Technique Tuesday's Skin Deep stamp set, The Angle Co. and CTMH stamps on this one.

The next card I did for a friends anniversary at the end of the month. For this one, I used Stampin Up and CTMH stamps, CTMH and SU cardstock and paper, and buttons.

And the last card I made, and my fav out of all of them, if a birthday card. I always seem to use The Angel Co. set Retail Therapy for my friend's bday's. I just love that saying in there " Happy Birthday Princess". I used that stamp set, SU and Rusty Pickle stamps. CTMH and SU cardstock. And some ribbon I found at the dollar spot at Target. Also painted a chipboard piece with Making Memories paint. Love that paint!!

Thanks for looking...have a great weekend.

Tri fold cards

Actually got in my craft room last night and got 2 cards made. My friend let me borrow a magazine from her and they had these wonderful tri-fold cards in the back. Well, I just had to try to make them. So these are the two I came up with. I like the blue one the best.
For the red, I used CTMH Summer B & T pattern paper. White cardstock and Laid Back stamp set.It is going to a customer who just had surgery.

For the blue one, CTMH Summer B & T pattern paper,Black cardstock, and the Typewriter keys stamp set for Hello. A couple flowers and that's about it! This one is going to a friend but it is a surprise on who it is!!
Thanks for looking!

Make it Monday..ooppss...Tuesday!!

Wow! Labor day weekend really messed me up! I was a day off all weekend! I missed my daughter's first jazz class on Monday, forgot to go to a birthday party for my friends grandmother and it took me 3 day's to go over to visit my own granny! Not to mention I forgot Make It Monday on my blog. Well, I am here now. Hopefully with my head on straight but making no promises!! LOL
This Make it Monday is kind of an easy one. I found a great sketch blog a while back. I know whenever I have a hard time thinking of a card, casing what someone else has done always get's me out of my slump. Cards are the hardest for me to make, and I always seem to need help with them. So this little site works wonders for me. Check it out, and their sketch for the week of Aug. 28th.
Here are the two cards that I made using the sketch.
The first one I made for my friends mother who is going through some medical stuff right now. I used mostly all Close to my heart on this one.

And this one I made for my friend who helped me out alot this weekend during my stamp club. She just charged in there and became my little "helper" without even being asked. She's a great gal and I wanted to send her a little thank you for doing that. These cards are way off of the sketch I know, but I like how you can take the base of an idea and make it your own. Thanks for looking, have a great weekend.
